With all the bad stuff going on in the world, it’s nice to see people who go above and beyond to do a good deed. Regardless of where you stand politically, here’s the video of an Alaska Airlines gate agent singing the national anthem prior to an Anchorage to Los Angeles flight. What’s the reason for the singing? Apparently the ashes of a fallen soldier were aboard, and she wanted to pay her respects.
The video was uploaded to Facebook in mid-October, though seems to have gained more traction over the past week or so. I actually saw it for the first time this evening.
I’ll let the video and description speak for itself otherwise:
Neal recorded this and luckily enough he had his phone out to record it. I was fighting back tears! This happened in the Anchorage airport just before we boarded our flight to Seattle. A fallen soldier’s ashes were being carried home on our plane. He served 21 selfless years in our military. What a moving experience and what an amazing voice of that Alaska Airlines employee!
